Case No. 2018-CR-00048
South Central Judicial District, Burleigh County
John W. Grinsteiner
2019 ND 239934 N.W.2d 1
Oral Argument 9/5/2019

Highlight

A defendant’s failure to object at trial to character evidence or evidence of alleged prior bad acts under N.D.R.Ev. 404 forfeits the claim of error.

The district court does not err by failing to give the jury an instruction limiting the use of character evidence or evidence of prior bad acts if neither party requests an instruction and the defendant does not object to the evidence at trial.
